(trade w/OlKing) - Small white head. Cloudy golden body. Nondescript aroma. Somewhat wheat character in the flavor. But, if I did a blind taste I might think itís a Pale Ale instead. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, not not necessarily hugely great.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice light yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipates and leaves some light stringy lacing clinging nicely to the glass. The smell was slightly malty with some orange and light flavors of wheat. The taste was kinda sweet with a touch of bitterness coming through. The aftertaste was mainly sweet and it had a quick dry finish. On the palate, it sat mainly light but also displayed a light refreshing quality running about my mouth and tongue. The carbonation was good for the American Pale Wheat Ale style and for me. Overall, I say this is a well worthy APWA to have again.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam NY, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy light golden with a frail white head. Aroma: Dusty, wheaty, some citrus, a touch soapy(?), a touch resinous and herbal, refreshing. Palate: Medium-ish body, relaxed carbonation. Flav.: Quite a bit of wheat character, faint citrus/resin, a touch perfumed...like coriander, pretty light, not entirely successful; dry with limited bitterness and a fairly clean, grainy/wheat/citrus/dusty finish.

Wasnít expecting much from this American Wheat Ale and my expectations were met!

Bought a case of this at the brewery after seeing a sign saying it was the last batch. Iím assuming they are retiring this brew. Itís a shame to because itís a decent normal drinking beer. Good with food and relaxation, not boozy. Youíll get a little citrus and sweetness. Very smooth going down without any bitter and you can drink a few and still feel fine.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Rated on 12-31-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a small white head with a short retention, transparent pale yellow body. The Aroma is wheat, citrus hops, and fruity. The Taste is malty, wheat and hint of citrus hops. The Palate is lightly bubbly and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, I did not care for the flavor of this beer as the flavors just did not join together very well. This beer lacks character and had no WOW factor for me. It is not a "bad" beer. I simply was not impressed with the flavor.

angel77 (772) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 13, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo. Marzo de 2013. Muy maltosa y con gran carga de cereales y trigo que la deberŪa hacer mŠs suave y ligera pero no, todo lo contrario, presenta un cuerpo medio bastante aspero con ligero Amargor final. No me convence.
